Inspired by Madsnapper Sandra


I once again try to capture a train through my rear view mirror while the front of it goes across the railroad crossing in front of me.


And this time, I succeed and manage to confuse myself. I intended to capture exactly this, but seeing my camera facing backwards in the mirror, I don't get it how the front end of the train shows up in front of me, up there in the right hand corner, as it goes over the railroad crossing. I guess I'm having a senior moment. I'm sure I'll figure it out later, so no need to explain it to me.

A cool picture though, right?

  11. Hubs enjoyed that train moment. He was a locomotive engineer for about ten years (they call them 'hoggers') We like trains.

    Mirrors skew our reality, overlapping the two. Our mind can't believe what our eyes are seeing. Interesting photos result, like double-exposures. Isn't photography fun?

  20. That is so funny. When I was a kid I used to walk round the house with a mirror under my eyes. It looked as if the ceiling was the ground. I was a strange child!

  21. Definitely a cool picture! I have problems with mirrors, myself. I never could curl my hair in front of a mirror, the curlers would get all twisted. :D
